I read a couple reports from the Original Venice Crew running two 65 GT350s (not original) that they were occasionally hitting 165 on some of the long straights. I think the only aero addition they are using is a ground sweeping front air dam, pretty vertical looking, along WITH front bumpers. They claim that when they first tested it, it worked well enough in induced some oversteer they had to adjust for.

Of course, they are also selling repros of these cars so any claims might be subject to embellishment.

Yup, still here. Car project has been stalled due to my shoulder surgery. Can't really turn the steering wheel yet .


The new rear springs have sat the butt down about 1-1/2". I'll have to remeasure and recalculate rake, as it's now almost level. I know a small change can have big consequences, so I'm curious how it will behave on track now.

Still thinking about racing later this summer? I have been getting into boating so I have not done anything on the mustang except to drive it.

Yes, looking at July 23rd at TRMP...as long as 1) I can muscle it around as my shoulder is about 70% still, and 2) I track down and fix the front end shake that I'm still getting. Arrrrggggg!

Might be able to do it. I have new gears to match my current tires to install and it needs brakes. I have all the parts to install brake ducts, then do a nut and bolt and I may be able to make it. Bought a new helmet in anticipation of racing this year.......
